Book Review: Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers

Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers opens in Lofty Pines, Wisconsin with library owner Rain Wilmot getting ready to host her first book club and discuss Agatha Christie's Sparkling Cyanide .  When one of the members dies under suspicious circumstances, Rain and best friend Julia take it on themselves to become amateur sleuths to find out what happens. I'd like to thank NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers.  Being a huge Agatha Christie fan, I knew I wanted to read Holly Danvers' latest book since the storyline revolved around one of Christie's novels.  When I was approved to receive a copy for free in exchange for my honest review, I was happy. All in all, I really enjoyed reading Read To Death At The Lakeside Library .  It was a super cute and fun read . . . a beach read if you will.  The only thing

Book Review: The Prisoner by B.A. Paris

Book Review The Prisoner by B.A. Paris
The Prisoner by B.A. Paris opens with Amelie losing her father to cancer and striking out to make it on her own as she doesn't want to be a ward of the state.  She eventually marries billionaire Jed Hawthorne, but one night, Amelie is awakened and finds herself and Jed being kidnapped.  Why are they being kidnapped, and who are her captors?

A big thank you to NetGalley and St. Martins Press for the Advanced Readers Copy of The Prisoner by B.A. Paris in exchange for my honest review.  This author is one of my favorite authors, so I was ecstatic that my request to review this book was approved.

The first thing that struck me about The Prisoner were some of the similarities between this book and The Family Game by Catherine Steadman.  Both books feature a main character that has been orphaned and a handsome, wealthy man who is isn't who you think he is.  However, that is where the semblance ends.  With that being said, there were times that I was getting the two confused since I read both books back to back.

The Prisoner was told from alternating timelines, which added mystery to the story.  This was done exceptionally well without detracting from the reading experience.  It was action packed and well written.  I found myself rushing through the book to finish because it was that engaging, and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen.  It was so captivating that I read The Prisoner in less than twenty-four hours.  I wanted Amelie to be okay and couldn't care less about what happened to her husband because he turned out to be that despicable. The only thing that I didn't particularly care for was the ending, which seemed a little abrupt to me.  I wish there had been a bit more backstory to Ned and more character development of Amelie's friends.
Four out of five stars is what I gave The Prisoner by B.A. Paris and can't wait to read her next novel.  I guess I'm in for a long wait.
